Wild Beasts 2012 Tour Schedule (March)


Wild Beasts have confirmed a short series of British tour dates in March 2012 - tickets are on sale now.

Wild Beasts weren't sure where to place their music, so they simply made a place of their own. Third album 'Smother' was released earlier this year, sparking the usual exuberant display of critical vigour.

Since then, the band have played some spectacular live shows. Wild Beasts are currently on tour, playing two nights at London's Shepherds Bush Empire this week.

Bringing their November tour to a close, the band have immediately announced plans for a seven date tour in March. Composed of towns and cities Wild Beasts have yet to visit on the 'Smother' war path, the tour opens in Warwick on March 11th.

Reaching Exeter on March 14th, the tour ends in Liverpool with a show at the Masque Theatre on March 17th.

Tickets went on sale this morning (November 25th) with the announcement coinciding with the release of a new single. Taken from 'Smother', 'Reach A Bit Further' is out now on 12 inch vinyl backed with B-sides 'Catherine Wheel', 'Smother' and new track, 'Thankless Thing'.

Recorded with Richard Formby at the beginning of the album sessions, stream 'Thankless Thing' below and then check out the full list of dates after the jump...
